Derby veteran Savage closing on game No500

Derby County veteran Robbie Savage is just eight games from his 500th professional appearance.

Midfielder Savage, 36, marked his 100th league club appearance with a typically energetic performance in victory over Scunthorpe, then revealed he does extra running to try to extend his 16-year career.

"I still work as hard as I can and I've only missed two days' training in three years," he said. "The older you get the harder you work and even on my days off I go for little jogs around the streets where I live. You have to at my age."
